The childcare system in England isn’t working for families.
Great childcare sets up young children for life – helping them to learn, express themselves and get along with other children. It’s where they learn the communication skills, and gain the confidence and curiosity that will mean they can thrive once they start school.
Parents need childcare that gives them the choice to go back to work. But hundreds of thousands aren’t getting the help they should be. It’s a battle for mums, dads, and caregivers to get the support they’re entitled to.
This campaign is about making childcare fair and easy to use. Nursery workers and childminders are doing an incredible job. But right now, our broken childcare system isn’t giving families the support they need – at the most important time in their children’s lives.
It’s time to push for a childcare system that gives parents choices and children the chance to build a better future. Together, we’re calling on the government to make childcare in England work for everyone.
